The best jazz show in town —Wall Street Journal
The Django Festival All-Stars bring the music of the legendary gypsy jazz guitarist, Django Reinhardt, fully into the twenty-first century. Their unique, high-energy performances pay tribute to Reinhardt, who is considered one of the greatest guitar players of all time.

The All-Stars honor the traditions while adding their own interpretations, arrangements, and original compositions with stunning virtuosity.
